The Cottage was as good if not better than the pictures, it has brilliant views and is handy for the village shop and pub. Would love to return.

Ms F,


Helford is an idyllic little village set on the Helford River, just south of Falmouth. The area is blessed with stunning scenery – beautiful countryside, glorious walks following the meandering river and a plethora of quiet little coves and bays along the coast.

The whole region is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a number of picturesque villages and hamlets dotted throughout the landscape. Whether you stay in Helford village, Maenporth, Gweek, Coverack, Manaccan, Flushing or Porthallow, each has its own charm and character, with thatched and white-washed cottages a real feature. Why not explore all of them, sampling the quintessentially English village pubs along the way!

Helford is situated on the east coast of the Lizard Peninsula, with Lizard Point a must-see attraction. Other great days out in the area include the Seal Sanctuary, the sub-tropical paradise of Trebah Gardens and firm family favourite, Flambards. The nearby towns of Porthleven and Helston offer restaurants, supermarkets and pubs and, of course, the harbour town of Falmouth is just up the coast, providing for all your shopping needs, excursions and more.
